A riot of colour, beauty and riches – Kim Sacks Gallery

Beaded, appliqued and embroidered cloths

Kim Sacks, who is a potter, a teacher, a facilitator and much more besides, has developed a gallery which sells a range of exquisite artefacts. These range from historical to contemporary, and include functional objects used in a traditional context (milk gourds, head rests, stools, sticks, clothing regalia, etc.) and objects like pottery and artwork made in a Western context for commercial gain.  Packed with beautiful objects, Kim’s shop is a riot of colour and aesthetic beauty, but more than that, is Kim herself:  a warm, interesting and out-of-the mould person.

A log fire enhances the sense of a domestic space

Zulu pots and baskets

Tea, served on a traditional food platter as tray, is always on offer, and in winter there is a log fire which warms the space, In summer the back verandah provides overflow for browsers to take a break. So make sure that when you visit the Art Strip (more of that in an upcoming blog), you  pass by 153 Jan Smuts Ave.  011-477-5804
